Waringstown recruit Inland's Ruhan Pretorius - 24/02/15

Ruhan PretoriusWARINGSTOWN have recruited KwaZulu-Natal Inland all-rounder Ruhan Pretorius for the 2015 season.

Pretorius will replace outgoing professional Shaheen Khan who suffered a recent back injury preventing his return to The Lawn.

The 23-year-old all-rounder though, should prove a capable replacement given his exploits both home and abroad in recent years. 

The KZN Inland star has scored 1,048 runs at 24.95 and taken 75 wickets at 25.16 over 29 first-class games to date. He also averages 32.90 and 26.47 with bat and ball respectively in List-A cricket for Inland.

Pretorius has spent three summers abroad, initially with Derbyshire League side Eckington in 2011 (51 scalps at 16.65 and 730 runs at 40.56) before the past two seasons with North East Premier League club Tynemouth (2013: 456 runs at 26.82 and 41 wickets at 18.95; 2014: 26 wickets and 281 runs at 18.73 respectively).

The talented all-rounder is eager to make a big impression in the Northern Cricket Union for Waringstown this summer.
